The bad news: It's very much in need of refurbishment, but at this price could be a great project for someone in the market for a holiday home or with the time to renovate to their liking before moving in.  

Mohill is a small town of just under 900 inhabitants, a hop-skip-and-a-jump away from Carrick-on-Shannon. There's great love for the area among locals, with the Mohill Photography Club organizing to document the townspeople in 2017.

The famous blind harpist Turlough Carolan lived there, and Douglas Hyde, the first president of Ireland, spent his childhoods there.
